Today (Friday) sees the final episode of the BBC documentary series focusing on Special Constables in Cambridgeshire.

‘The Specials’ has been screened for three weeks and today is the final episode of the 15-part series.

The final episode will show the Special Constables as they deal with a robbery in Wisbech last December. Two men were arrested on suspicion of robbery but both were later released with no further action.

The BBC One documentary, which has been screened daily at 11am, shows the volunteer officers chasing and arresting the men.

The programme will also include Special Chief Inspector Bill Bond making an unexpected discovery when he stops a speeding motorist.

Special Chief Officer Phil Hill said: “I hope the series has highlighted the work of both Specials and their other colleagues working together in Cambridgeshire and also shown their unique nature in combining that work with a career and family life away from the police.

“I am really pleased with the series and I’d like to thank the Specials who took part and their families who were involved in the documentary.”
